What is a Floater Frame?
Designed for artwork that is printed or painted on canvas, floater frames give art the illusion of floating inside the picture frame without touching it, which creates an interesting visual detail and a sense of three-dimensional depth in the overall display.
Materials and Sizes
A floater frame can be made out of metal or wood, the same as standard picture frames. They can be made to any size and with different frame widths, although many floater frames are narrow for the best display of the photo. Different finishes are available, including metallic finishes as well as matte colors. Because these frames are designed to work with photos printed on canvas or other canvas-based artwork, they need to be matched with the stretched canvas frame, which is then attached to the back of the floater frame to create the illusion that the canvas is floating inside – but not touching – the main picture frame.
Ordering a Floater Frame
To get a floater frame sized correctly for your artwork, you need to make sure you order based on the right size of your stretched canvas photo or art piece. Check with the seller of your frame to make sure you understand how they size their frames and what dimensions they require in order to create your frame. Often they will want the actual size of the stretched artwork and will build the floater frame with increased dimensions to create the needed space or “moat” between the edge of the artwork and the frame itself.

What is a custom floater frame?
A floater frame is a creative and unique way to display your art work, object, photo or anything else that you would need a custom frame for. The frame is designed in a way that the piece of work is not pressed into the frame, but rather appears to float within the frame. You can see some examples below. Because of this feature, the artwork gains a three-dimensional depth when looking at the piece.
